WI vs ENG Dream11 team, Who will win West Indies vs England 1st T20I Today Match Prediction 23 January

Share

WI vs ENG Today Match Prediction: West Indies would be hosting England in a 5-match T20 Internationals at Kensington Oval, post the completion of which would mark the commencement of a 3-match Test Series which is scheduled in the month of March. England, led by Eoin Morgan, last played T20 Internationals back in November 2021, which was during the T20 World Cup in UAE, wherein they lost their last two matches to South Africa and New Zealand, thereby crushing any chances of making the knockouts. Meanwhile, West Indies had traveled to Pakistan last month for a 3-match T20Is only to face a whitewash defeat at the hands of Babar Azam & Co. Certainly, the learnings received would have made the Caribbean side stronger at the same time, one must remember for lethal the English side could be once they gather a bit of momentum in their favor.

WI vs ENG Today Match Prediction

England looks quite dominant on paper in terms of the batting and bowling attack they’ve set up for this matchup. The likes of Jason Roy, James Vince, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings and a young Phil Salt as their batters offer a fair chance of ramping up a competitive total. Add to that the presence of pacers Saqib Mahmood, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills and ace leggie Adil Rashid who’d be raring to reap rewards from the conditions. 

Who will win today’s WI vs ENG match?

England are the heavy favorites for this match in WI vs ENG dream11 prediction, despite West Indies playing at their home conditions. The visitors look all in all more competent than the Kieron Pollard-led side even on a one-on-one comparison.

  • Kieron Pollard’s one of the vital cogs for the West Indies in the shortest format. He’s arguably one of the top five players to have graced the T20 cricket, which makes it all the more crucial for the skipper to lead by an example in the upcoming duel. And not to forget, his familiarity with the conditions would certainly have its say as the match progresses.

  • Nicholas Pooran has had his share of success and failures in the shortest format, but with the kind of destruction-laying prowess that’s stocked within him, he could be the most lethal player at the venue when on song.

Best opener in the world

  • Jason Roy, being an immaculate striker of the ball and someone who relishes the shortest format of the game, is certainly one of the key players for England heading into this matchup. The right-hander’s presence at the top-order could prove to be a major hurdle for the hosts in the five-match T20Is.

  • Adil Rashid’s leg-breaks and googlies have done wonders for England in the limited-overs format. The conditions offered at Kensington Oval provide a bit of help to the spinners, which is something the 33-year-old would be aiming to capitalize from the very moment he’s in the middle.
